Family Matters with Naomi Petropoulos

Today we meet with Naomi Petropoulos, a DePOT affiliate and PhD candidate at Queens University Belfast.  Her work on the history of “The Original Derry Girls”– the workers of the women-dominated garment industry in Derry – led her to interview both her Grandmother and Mother in-law who had worked at the factories.  We discuss the experience of interviewing family, both from the perspective of being a researcher and oral historian, but also as a granddaughter and daughter-in-law.  Find out more about DePOT here Music: "Never Give Up" by Ketsa.
